Patrolman Stillman was shot and killed after pursuing a suspect who had just sexually assaulted a woman. He was on patrol with a ride along in a residential area which was under construction when he noticed a suspicious vehicle parked on the street. Unbeknownst to Patrolman Stillman, the suspect had just finished assaulting the woman he had abducted from a nearby gas station. As he approached the vehicle the victim ran to Officer Stillman and the suspect ran into nearby woods.
Patrolman Stillman pursued him and apprehended him. Before the suspect was handcuffed a struggle ensued and the suspect gained control of Patrolman Stillman's .38 caliber handgun and shot him twice in the head. The suspect was apprehended the next day and sentenced to life in prison.
Patrolman Stillman had been with the agency for seven years and was survived by his expectant wife.

I cannot believe it has been 30 years. Not a day goes by that I don't try to live a life by the standards you led and the values you demonstrated every day to me. Even thought you were "adopted" I will never forget you, the guy I called brother and lived with all my heart.
